great documentary.
never knew the details of this incident, and like a few others said in this thread, you can certainly see why he is the way he is.

nobody even cared about him being good at sports until he started getting BIG attention.
his mom was crazy, and ain't even go to his games and s**t.
Iverson was having issues at school and whatnot, because he was at home playing a father to the rest of his family, making sure his sisters were taken care of.

nobody could ever judge him cus you ain't had to walk that mile.

the fact that he persevered through ALL that s**t, in itself is pretty interesting.

i'm extremely happy Philly drafted him, and iverson TRULY revolutionized the game.
The style, the attitude of it, he actually made the NBA "cool".
A.I. is significant for being the first NBA superstar with a distinctly authentic "street" image.
Before A.I., the idea of white America embracing an athlete with cornrows, tattoos, & a criminal record was basically unimaginable, but Iverson was just so good on the court (not to mention that he played with such heart and effort) that everyone had to at least grudgingly acknowledge his superstardom.
No matter where you stand when it comes to Iverson the player, you have to know that he's culturally significant.

Everybody and they mom it seemed like was watching iverson's every step
you had little kids everywhere wanting to be just like him

and he's a SURE lock for the Hall of Fame.
AI is one of only 3 guards to average 27 or more PPG in his career --
the other 2 are Jerry West and Michael Jordan.

In fact, The Answer and The Logo are the only 2 players in NBA history to average 27 PPG, 6 APG, & 2 SPG for their careers.

He's pound for pound the best NBA player probably ever......at 5 foot 10, 160lbs, guys ain't supposed to be able to play basketball like him.

Even Shaq, who some regard as one of the best players during AI's era, was on record being asked "Who's the toughest guy in the NBA" and he said "Allen Iverson"....

it's just crazy to see things how they are right now with him and his career and his family man.

After watching it, i was sitting there thinking like..........damn man, i watched the end of two era's of Philadelphia Sports during my lifetime, between AI and Donovan McNabb, and the messed up part of both situations is, they were both carrying subpar teams on they're back, took most of the blame for the f**k ups, both made it to the Championship games and lost to Dynastys (LA Lakers, NE Patriots), and had a coaching staff and franchise who opted to NEVER put any talent around either of these individuals.

never seen anything like it.

Iverson to this very day doesn't get half the respect he deserves, and the NBA will NEVER, EVER, EVER see a player go as hard as he was during his prime.

my man fought for EVERY f**kin' inch of that basketball court, you wasn't takin s**t from him unless you k!lled him, and that type of heart isn't instilled in most players today like it was.

He truly was one of a kind, and it's sad to see how some motherf**kers still wanna crack jokes and act like AI wasn't s**t.

AI was so monumental to Philadelphia basketball, i literally almost haven't watched a single game, and DEFINITELY haven't enjoyed a single game near as much as i did when i used to watch EVERY game when he played. Any Sixers or Philadelphia fan will tell you that. Dude is a Philly legend always and forever, and we'll always love him just as much as he loved us. That's real talk.

My man was a straight warrior, f**k a championship, that dude played his motherf**kin heart out every night he stepped on to that court. I can't ask for nothing else.

wow your dumb.... to answer your question, his BEST FRIENDS said he was an alcoholic dummy... and getting banned from casinos is well known.... guess thats a conspiracy as well and he threw his wife outta the house nekkid, i guess her calling the cops was a conspiracy as well??? I wouldn't be shocked at all if he did hit that girl with the chair

and your logics are dumb, basicly your saying if you don't see something with your own eyes it didn't happen??? you'se some common sense.... bush never came out and said i don't like n*ggas so I guess thiers no truth to that according to your logic?

and yes players butt heads with coaches at TIMES, but swearing and embarassing a HOF coach when he takes u out of the game for what 4 minutes lol..... is dis respectfull any way u cut it.....and funny u ignored the fact that he quit on a team for the 3rd time now

your the fakest black activist i ever seen in my life.... every thread on here all u do is reach on a bunch of dumb racial s**t in sports...like any of these athletes give a f**k about your post from your moms basement...... like your accomplishing anything b**ching on the INTERNET 24 hours a day....

lmfaooo...sorry man. i just never seen anyone spell use like that. i actually started laughing hard when i read that.

And no one said Iverson is a perfect person...everyone makes mistakes. Doesn't mean they don't have a good heart. And you say all these things are so well known but you seem to be one of few you know or claim to know. So how well known is it really?
